Coreopsis

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Coreopsis is rugged, fast growing, and full of colorful flowers. No wonder it’s so popular—with butterflies and people alike.

Coreopsis has a reputation of being a perennial flower gardener’s best friend. This tough, rapid-growing, drought-tolerant butterfly magnet is a long-blooming perennial. It’s also easygoing when it comes to soil, accepting anything but waterlogged soils. A prairie native, coreopsis is sometimes still called by its original name, tickseed, because of the seeds’ resemblance to ticks.

Good companions include salvia, veronica, helenium, sedum, and ornamental grasses.

Growing Coreopsis

Mounded forms need no support. Upright columnar forms sometimes need staking with a ring support. Deadhead to promote reblooming. Divide plants every 2 to 3 years to keep plants vigorous. Avoid fertilizing to discourage floppy growth. Powdery mildew sometimes affects foliage. Remove any stems that show signs of this disease. Space plants appropriately for good air circulation.
